LUNCH THEY’LL LOVE

Perk up your child’s packed lunch with our colourful ideas

At school, I was never much of a fan of packed lunches, and would often be left with an untouched soggy sandwich to sheepishly hand back to Mum. Transform your own kids’ lunchtime from staid to surprising with some balanced, fresh options. Our stacked lunchbox is perfect for packing with an array of tasty treats and comes with built-in cutlery. Fill the pot with a spoon of houmous and cut shapes from veggies to give kids a crunchy mid-morning snack – you can use the leftovers in smoothies and soups. Inject some colour with our rainbow beetroot and feta wrap (there’s a healthy bonus of dehydrated veg mixed into the wrap, but no need to tell them that). Add fresh berries and you’ve got a lunch to look forward to.
